Raincoast is proud to reissue the second of Canadian children's author Christie Harris' popular Mouse Woman books-based on legends of the Haida people of British Columbia-with this second book in the series, Mouse Woman and the Vanished Princesses.Taking the form of both a mouse and a grandmother, Mouse Woman's role, as Harris' carefully researched and respectfully told legends tell, is to keep order. Both a teacher and a nurturer, the ever-watchful Mouse Woman keeps a particularly close eye on young people. This reissue of the original text features the striking original black-and-white line drawings by Douglas Tait. With a new and more contemporary look, these compelling stories will appeal to both long-time Christie Harris fans as well as new readers, young and old. Mouse Woman and the Muddleheads, the third book in the series, will be released next year.
